I'll Hold My Breath

  • Breathe air you're not used to, tread floors you don't fall through
    Make waves
    You crash a symbol hard
    Follow no one, always play the wrong card
    Waste days, in foreign places
    Shed lights, on your better side
    Reassure me that you'll wait for me, wait for me as long as it takes!

    And I'll hold my breath, I'll hold my breath

    Until you see me in your dreams
    We'll stay awake beneath the trees
    We'll watch the buildings turn to dust
    A sky of diamonds just for us
    You are the risk I'll always take
    The only branch I'll never break
    Those fears we'll blow them all way

    Fight fires in your best clothes, touch skin with your eyes closed
    Chase thunder
    With the volume down
    Pack a suitcase, wonder to the next town
    Force quit, on your losing streak
    Solve a riddle in a magazine, be tongue in cheek
    Tell me that we're still too young, that we're still too young and I'll my tongue

    Until you see me in your dreams
    We'll stay awake beneath the trees
    We'll watch the buildings turn to dust
    A sky of diamonds just for us
    You are the risk I'll always take
    The only branch I'll never break
    Those fears we'll blow them all way

    I'm here, I'm here to save you
    No fall, I will swim to save you

    Until you see me in your dreams
    We'll stay awake beneath the trees
    We'll watch the buildings turn to dust A sky of diamonds just for us
    You are the risk I'll always take
    The only branch I'll never break
    Those fears we'll blow them all way Writer/s: FINLAY GRAHAM DOW SMITH, GOULDING ELLIE
